WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue baseball's home game against Indiana State Tuesday evening, the midweek finale for both teams, has been canceled due to incoming rain showers and thunderstorms.
The Boilermakers will close out their regular season with a three-game series vs. Iowa, which opens Thursday evening at Alexander Field and runs through Saturday afternoon. Fans with tickets for Tuesday's game vs. Indiana State, which will not be made up, can use those tickets for admission to any game of the Iowa series. Thursday and Friday's games are set for 6:30 p.m. and Saturday's series finale gets underway at 2 p.m.
Ticket specials for the Iowa series include:
-- $1 general admission tickets for all military and emergency personnel Thursday
-- $1 general admission tickets for all Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts Friday
-- $15 ($10 Youth) general admission tickets that include an all you can eat pass to the concession stand Friday. A beer garden will also be open to all fans 21 and older Friday.
Tuesday marked Purdue's sixth game of the season that was canceled due to weather, but the first since the first weekend of March.
The Boilermakers need to sweep Iowa this weekend for a chance to qualify for the eight-team Big Ten Tournament. One win will clinch the Hawkeyes their first tourney berth since 2010.
